Steven Schwartz represented our daughter in her criminal defense, MIP II. He was polite, knowledgeable, upfront, honest, and fairly priced. Each time we called, we spoke directly with Steven. We highly recommend Steven Schwartz. Our daughter received zero jail sentence, minimal fee's, excellent representation!

Steven was able to get me out of a 4 point speeding ticket!! I loved working with him and I would definitely recommend him to my friends and family members.

Our family felt hopeless when our daughter was arrested on drug charges. We are blessed that we found Steven! He stuck by her through thick and thin. We were never in the dark we could always reach him if need be. The case took longer than he expected but he was always there for her and truly cared about her well being. With his help she is on the right track and getting the help she needs. He did his part and we are thankful now it's up to her!

I had the trouble with the child abuse. I had no way to solve the problem before I met Mr. Schwartz. By the way, after I met him, I didn't have to worry any more. He found the good way to dismiss my case. Then now I am free!!!! I really appreciate all his works and whenever my friend or my neighbor get in trouble, I will recommend Mr. Schwartz strongly !!!!!

Was in front a very tough judge. Was probably looking at probation or possibly jail. Walked away paying fine and costs. Best attorney. Worth the money

I had a ticket from a construction zone with a surprisingly low speed limit. It was residential, so 3 points and 3 years of terrible car insurance rates once my car insurance company got wind of it. I contacted Mr. Schwartz, he indicated he was confident we could get it reduced, and he managed to get it reduced to merely impeding traffic, a fine, no points, no Secretary of State involvement, and just a minor financial burden which is easily forgotten. He delivered on his promise and I'm very happy with the results.

I was sending a text in a parking lot when four police officers approached me, searched my car, and found marijuana paraphernalia. I was taken to jail, and needed legal advice. So I called Steve on a whim just to ask some questions. Not only did he provide me with great advice, but he actually TOLD me that I should probably shop cheaper for my case. How great of a lawyer do you have when he recommends that you don't pay him money?! I later found out that, since I am not considered indigent, that I would need to provide my own attorney. Since Steve had already talked me down from several panic attacks, I called him and said, "Steve, I need you." Without hesitation, Steve met with me THAT NIGHT to learn the facts of the case. Upon discussion, he assured me that I had nothing to worry about. The maximum penalty for my misdemeanor in Livonia is 90 days in jail and $1500 in fines. I spent zero time in jail (other than at the time of arrest), and am handling 6 months of probation instead, all thanks to Steve Schwartz. He even pulled a fast one and tried to give me a discounted rate since he knew I was young and thought I was a nice guy. Well Steve, you were right. And here's the review to prove it. You saved me from certain terror, and when the police showed me no mercy, you stopped me from flipping a lid and led me down the primrose path to freedom. Thanks for everything. If you're looking for a damn good lawyer or even just simple legal counsel, Steven Schwartz is your man. He's a brilliant lawyer with years of experience, he's on his way to becoming a judge, and he's one hell of a guy.

I had a drunk driving charge and Steven talked to the prosecuter and had it brought down fo an MIP!

Steve is phenomenal. Always easy to reach, emphatic with his clients, patient in explaining the law and strategies going forward, and super-friendly and easy to get along with. Highly recommended!!

Steven here is a very good lawyer . He is available almost always i first contacted Steven on a Saturday at 7:30PM and he and his law office were available . He got the prosecutor to drop a marijuana possession charge . He was very understanding with payment arrangements . Even though i was unable to make a payment for close to a month and he accepts payment plans . Very responsive in the court room and knowledgeable in most areas and was able to answer every and all of my questions and concerns . I would recommend Steven to anyone in need of a lawyer or in legal trouble . With very high regards from a very satisfied client .

Mr. Schwartz was fantastic!! I cant say enough good things about him. My husband was facing prison and his probation officer recommended prison, he is now in rehab getting the help he needs instead of sitting in a prison cell all thanks to Mr. Schwartz. I hope we never need an attorney again but I will absolutely hire Mr. Schwartz again without hesitation!

•I recommend Steven Schwartz.
•I hired Steven 1 month ago.
•Steven handled my traffic violation.
Steven helped resolve a traffic violation I received and kept points off my clean record. He was quick and very professional and well worth his fee. I would definitely recommend him to friends and family.

I was charged with enbezzlement and thought life was over! I hired Mr Schwartz and he got the case down to a misdemeanor. I now have a better job and a second chance at my life. I do not have a felony and did not have to go to jail. What a relief!

Steven helped resolve an accident ticket for my daughter. He was quick and very professional and well worth every penny we paid him. I would definately recommend him to my own mother let alone everyone else. thanks Steven.

I have hired Steve on two occasions, and each time he accomplished the seemingly impossible. The peace of mind I had from knowing that he was doing everything he could to help my case was invaluable.
Posted by Nick, a Speeding Ticket client, Flag
Mr. Schwartz was very helpful with my traffic case. I would hire him again!
Posted by Alan, a Criminal Defense client, Flag
I had the good fortune of having Steven as my attorney.I was facing a very serious charge and Steven took control of the matter. I was looking jail time and i was really frightened of being sent to jail.Steven understood my concerns and reassured me that he would do all he can .We stood before the judge and Steven argued my case,vigorously, with confidence and got my case dismissed. I would suggest anyone needs needs a great attorney to call Steve.

I spent time in prison for prior drug convictions i felt hopeless after receiving another. When i found out my license would get suspended for a possession charge my world would've fallen apart, until Steven fought for me every step of the way. He got my possession charge knock down to disorderly conduct so that I would not loss my license.No jail time!! Best lawyer I ever had!!!! :)
Posted by Aiden, Flag
I was lucky to find such a good attorney on my first hand research on internet. I was treated as family not just another case, yet very professional on court, a man of his word with IMPECCABLE character.... case dismissed. Always took time to answer ALL my questions when i was confused, i mean Who gives out the Cell phone to their clients.
He was outstanding in his representation and i highly recommend him to all who are in need of counsel with his expertise. thank you Mr. Schwartz.
Posted by Namer, a Speeding Ticket client, Flag
I received a speeding ticket in when I was on vacation in Detroit (20 mph) over the authorized speeding limit. Hiring Mr. Schwartz was the best decision I made to represent me as he was able to bring the charge down to a "blocking traffic".
I highly recommend this attorney! Professional, courteous, great attitude and pleasant to work with!
Posted by joshua, a Criminal Defense client, Flag
I had multiple cases and probation violations. I was scared to death and lost in direction. I have hired other attorneys that cost me a fortune and did not compare to Steve.
I was fortunate to stumble upon Steve via the internet. What a great break. I have never been sentenced to jail with Steve as my lawyer.
Thank the good lord that I found the best, most responsive and a man I consider a friend and whom I call by his first name rather than Mr. Schwartz.
I highly recommend Steve for any criminal case!

Although I fortunately have not had too many dealings with lawyers, I found Steven Schwartz to be notches above the rest. He is the most personable, helpful and understanding lawyer I have ever dealt with. He genuinely cares and strived for the most favorable outcome, which he was able to get. If you ever need a lawyer, I would highly recommend Mr. Schwartz.
Posted by a Probate client, Flag
I'm a second-time client. With Steven you can go into court without fear. At my hearing, Mr. Schwartz clearly stood out among the twenty or so other lawyers I observed. Always available by phone with quick response time, he even offered to help me with some extraneous issues unrelated to my case. A true first-class lawyer and above all, a genuinely nice guy. If necessary, I wouldn't hesitate to enlist his services again.
Posted by Jim, a Criminal Defense client, Flag
If you need the best legal representation you can get, you need Steve Schwartz. My entire future, including my family's future, was about to be destroyed until I was able to get Steve Schwartz on my side. Steve had worked tirelessly to find the best solution to handling my felony case. He is thoughtful, concerned, energetic, and never makes you feel intimidated or uncomfortable in any way. Additionally, he did an excellent job at keeping me informed about how my case was progressing and always responded quickly to any questions or concerns I had. I can not emphasis enough the positive difference Steve Schwartz made in my life. I am not anticipating ever needing the services of a defense attorney for myself again, however, I would not hesitate a second in recommending him to a close friend or family member if the need would ever arise.

Steven is the most caring and personal lawyer/ man that i know. I am a client and he keeps me informed and is personal to the point of calling and texting just to make sure I am ok even on weekends and evenings. He is very professional and a genuine great human being. He is knowledgeable of what is in front of us and I trust this man with my life. I would recommend Steven Schwartz to anyone who is in need of a great lawyer.

Steven handled my OWI case like it was his only case! He is very honest, listens to you and is always available via phone if you need him! If it wasn't for Stevens quick thinking and knowledge of the court system, I would be in jail. I have referred Steven to multiple friends who have also hired Steven. A+ in all areas!
Posted by albert williams, a DUI client, Flag
I hired mr schwartz thinking he would overcharge me and do a poor job I was pleasantly surprised to find that he cared about what happened to me in a owi case and worked extremely hard to get me threw the process fairly. I would recommend this attorney to everyone who has a dui or any alcohol related offense. This attorney got a positive outcome in the 48th district court a court known for zero tolererance when it comes to drinking and driving. Great attitude and a all around profeessional who is a sincere good individual who did not sugar coat the truth. This is the type of attorney every defendant should have representing them in every case. He surely can get you the result you are looking for and or mimimize any negative outcome. Just a great attoney!!!!!!! Wow!!!!

Steve has been my lawyer for over ten years. I have reccomended him to many of my friends, who have also used him. I speak for everybody when I say he is the best lawyer in the tri-county area. I wish I could say more, but words cannot express the gratitude I owe Steve. He saved my life.

I was nerves this is not going to be good .steve talk me down and put a plan together that night. We meet at court in the morning. The deal he got me was less then i was sending each month. A friend recommended steve. And now I tell my friends. Hes the really deal.

Steven is a great attorney and one that I’d highly recommend. From personal observation, I know that Steven is hard-working, highly intelligent, talented, and has a great attitude!
Posted by Matt, a Criminal Defense client, Flag
I've worked with Steve on several cases/issues and he is one of the few attorneys out there you can trust. He keeps in touch with his clients and let's you know he has everything handled and under control. I don't know any other lawyers that would drive down to the police station on a Sunday late night to dispute a traffic ticket. If you need a trustworthy, well connected attorney, look no further. He will always remain on my speed dial :-)
Posted by Glen, a DUI client, Flag
Attorney Steven L. Schwartz, did an excellent job assisting me with my drinking and driving case, and provided me with his professional advice throughout the proceedings, to make intelligent decisions during my trial. Steven made a point to show that he understood the conflict that I was going through and worked patiently with me, after my sentencing, so that I could make payments that were convenient for me. He was always readily available, and he was professional and honest during the entire experience. I am very grateful that I had Steven Schwartz as my attorney. Thank you!

great guy to work with much more responsive than other lawyers I worked with.
Posted by Frank, a Criminal Defense client, Flag
Over the last 4 years my son has made really bad choices...he's not a bad person...just hangs around the wrong people...Steve has held our hands through several hearings and court dates. He is so incredibly knowledgable of the law and knows everyone in the courts. He has very reasonable rates (by-the-way he's worth every penny and more) I truly don't know what we'd have done without him. He kept my son out of real trouble with the courts several times. Highly recommended!! I am ex-military and a financial planner now. He took care of everything, so I could concentrate on my business.
Posted by Ram, a Criminal Defense client, Flag
Mr. Schwartz spends time in understanding the issue and explains the possible outcome, does not promise the moon and presents a true picture of the likely outcome.
Where he lacks knowledge, he does not hesitate to tell you so and seeks guidance from his peers/mentors.
Highly dependable and he puts you at ease, you will feel as though you have met a doctor rather than a lawyer.
I have had two occasions to engage his services, one for myself and the second for a friend of mine and on both the occasions he came out with flying colors.

Steven is an outstanding attorney that truly cares about his clients. Steven gives his personal cell phone to every client, and is always available. He manages his cases with confidence and efficiency. Steven has a strong, engaging interest, skill, and knowledge in criminal law. I give my highest recommendation to Steven as a criminal defense attorney. He will use his experience, abilities, and genuine concern to serve you well.

I had Steve represent me in a crimanal case. He got my delivery of drugs case reduced to a misdermeaner. He was a bulldog in court. He gave me his carphone number and was always available. I recently read were he got a murderer like 5 years or something. Little known but a great plus in my life.
